Only 5 weeks ago I’ve written that Cleanflight has a problem. Looks like, the problem was much bigger than I expected. Today in the morning, Dominic Clifton aka. Hydra essentially killed the project by resetting GitHub repository to Betaflight 3.1.
It was announced on Facebook:
Cleanflight v2.0.0-RC1 is out now, with all the new features from Betaflight v3.1 – please share this post!
Thanks to the hard-working betaflight developers especially Boris B, Jason Blackman and Martin Budden who have been doing fantastic work for us all!
Also, all GitHub Issues and Pull Requests were deleted.
What does that means? More less the following:
- Cleanflight lost all it’s uniqueness and is Betaflight under different name
- Pilots that were using Cleanflight on airplanes or big multirotors are left alone. Betaflight aims on mini-quads, not airplanes!
- Why anyone would want to use CF when BF is there and this moment it offers better community support?
The way I see it, it was a nice ride, but now it is over and Cleanflight is dead. Too bad, since it had a huge impact on multirotor community over last few year…
